Syriac Text .V— r< 


Some time ago Professor Sachau drew my attention to certain 
parts of the K e t h ab h a d be semhe of Bar 'Eb h raya. After a careful 
study of that work, and after having gained a better insight into 
the manner, in which the author had composed his many other 
writings, I found it necessary, to search for all possible sources, 
from which the celebrated MapVyan might have drawn his know- 
ledge. I felt certain, that, had any important grammatical trea- 
tises been brought to light before his time, he surely, to judge from 
his other works, would have made good use of them. 

For a native Syrian Grammarian, there are three sources, 
from which he may gather his information: from the works of his 
own native grammarians ; from those of his Arabic teachers ; and, 
indirectly from the iix^ T t °f *^ e Greeks. a) It was especially the first 
of these sources, which interested me in regard to Bar 'Eb h raya. 
To the end of being better informed on that point, I read and 
copied as many of the native Syrian Grammarians, as were to he 
found in the collections here. That of Professor Sachau— now the 
property of the Royal Library in Berlin — together with two Mss. 
from the Petermann collection, gave me all the material I needed. 
Very soon my attention was particularly drawn to two of the 
smaller grammatical compendia; very different from each other in 
the subject matter, but as similar in the brevity, and clearness,

of their diction: the one — which I here publish — th« turas 
mam(l)la of Elia of S6b h a a) (Nisibis), the other the nisa d he gram- 
matikut b a (xe/VY] Ypa r t l JWXtlx "')) of Jausep h Huzaya. b) As Jausep h 
Huzaya flourished about the year 580— a hundred years before 
Ja f kob h of Edessa, and nearly 300 before Honain bar Ishak, I 
eagerly went to work, at what, I believed, would bring us one 
point further in understanding the relationship, in which the first 
Syrian Grammarians stood to their Greek teachers. c) My hopes 
were realized J but in a manner different to. what I had expected. 
The nisa d he grammatikut h a turned out to be the xeprj ypaftfjta- 
xixrj — the celebrated compendium of Dionysius Thrax. d) As I after- 
wards learned, Prof. Merx, who had discovered the same transla- 
tion in two Mss. in the British Museum, e) had promised an edition 
of the same/* I yielded to his prior rights. In the notes, however, 
I have cited several passages; partly, because we there reach the

last authority and starting-point for rules which the later gram- 
marians propound, and partly to give some idea of this interesting 

The reasons which induce me now to edit the other of the 
two works are; a) Elia wrote his grammar about the same time 
as his namesake, Elia of Tirhan; if the supposition in note 102 be 
right, still earlier. Whether this is so or not, Elia of Sob b a stands, 
as regards form and subject matter, much nearer Ja c kob h , than 
does Elia of Tirhan. b) His style is clear and concise; the rules 
are given in a dry— at times monotonous — manner, but, also, 
without ever attempting to force the Syriac into grammatical 
forms to which it is quite strange. In both of these, he is the 
direct opposite of Elia of Tirhan; who, however, for his part, as 
regards independence of judgement, stands far above Elia of Nisi- 
bis. c) As representative of the school of S6b b a, and as starting- 
point for a number of later grammarians, he claims our full 
interest. To this last point I have paid particular attention in the 
notes, even at the risk of their becoming unnaturally long. 

What position docs Elia occupy in the history of the native 
Syrian GrammarianB ? Looking backwards, we have to enquire, 
in what relation does he stand to his predecessors? Here the answer 
can be very short. Of all who- wrote on grammatical subjects 
before his time-- Jausep 11 Huzaya, Ahud h *'me, Juhanan Estanya, 
Ja'kob h Urhaya, Honain &c. we know next to nothing. Elia, himself 
mentions two authorities: Ja'kob h of Edessa (from the turas 
mam(l)la p. 5, 8, from his letter on Syriac Orthography — although 
not mentioned by name — p. 12, 4) and Honain (K^abH d he nukze 
Chap. V.). I have reason to think that these are not the only 
passages belonging here; pp. 6,4 and 28,14 have undoubted refe- 
rence, the* one to the grammar, the other to the Letter of Ja'kob 1 *.** 

a) Severus of Mar(i) Mattai and Jausep h bar Malkon cite these passage too; 
but, as I believe only at second hand, through Elia. See notes 6, 23. 30.* 81. 


I can not find that the Arabian Grammarians nave bad much in- 
fluence upon Elia: at the most, ©uiy in the two chap tiers, on the 
pronunciation (r<Siasn, r -\* x "i KSIti) of the letters , and in that 
on the letters which interchange with one another. 

If we now, however, ask, what was the fate of Elia's turas 
mam(l)la among his contemporaries and successors, we have to note 
the following: 

Juhanan bar Zabi, a) monk in the monastery of Be(i)t h Koke 
(called that of Sabbariso') in the neighbourhood of Arbe(i)l, pupil 
of Semon Sank°lawi b) composed a work containing grammatical 
and philosophical treatises, addressed to a certain Giwargis. 0) In 
these he has made good use of our Elia. Had we not direct tss& 
mony to hand, the one fact would be convincing,, that in all M&s* 
(sometimes without a heading of its own as in Ms. B.) the works 
of both are invariably faanct together, Elia always stan&ig? first. 
It would seem that Bar Zobi had taken the treatise of Elia up 
bodily, as the first of bis own collection. Fol. 32 a, 80= a he men- 
tions him by name; fol. 15? b/* he refers his readers directly to 
Mar(i) Elia. At other times, he has taken the single rules, as 
worked out by Elia; and, without mentioning any name, enlarged 
themv ai *d multiplied the examples. See. especially notes, 41 and 
9&;in general comp. no$es 47. 82. 86. 88 &cl 

More interesting is* the relation in which Elia stands to 
Severus bar Sakku, e) bishop in the convent of Mar(i) Mattai ia& the

neighbourhood of Niniveh. He studied under Bar Zobi, and 
through him was probably made acquainted with the grammar of 
Elia. From him he has taken whole passages bodily into the 
grammatical parts of his "Dialogues". They follow Elia so closely, 
that I have been able, at times, to make textual use of the same. 
See notes 23. 32. 41. 90. The dialogues are written in a peculiar 
manner. The same subject is treated of twice, sometimes three 
times. It so happens that passages from Elia are found— as dis- 
jecta membra — in different corners of the book. Such passages 
I have generally given in full. See notes 18. 23. 32. 41. 49. 58. 64. 
81. 90. 

The same can be said of Jausep h bar Malkon Bishop of 
Maridin. I have been unable to find any further information 
about his life. a) Assemani, B. 0. iii, 308. Wright, Catalogue p. 1177 
do not mention a single date. I have the impression that, in point 
of time, he comes before the two last mentioned. He, too, has 
taken passages from Elia word for word, changing them only in 
so far, as it was necessary to fit them into his duo decasyllabic 
Metre. See notes 23. 41. 63. 79. 90. In note 48 I have given a 
passage, part of which is found, word for word, in Bar Zo'bi's 
metrical grammar. 

As regards Bar 'Eb h raya, the result is not quite that which 
I had expected. The K e t h ab h a d he semhe stands so high above all 
its predecessors, is so much more worked out, that it is difficult 
to find out its single parts. And yet there is no doubt, that Elia

has worked here before him. {Compare the chapter on the letters 
which interchange with one another.) From this point of view I 
have cited Bar 'Eb h raya. It is possible that in one place he has 
EJia in nwod {see npte 44). In general compare notes 7 {== Bar 
Zo'bi) 13. 5P- 5$ &c. &c. CJnriQus is b.ere the part that Severus 
pjays. In note 95 I have .called attention to two chapters in the 
metrical grammar, which have very striking resemblance with a 
passage from Severus there cited. See also note 32. 

Of later Grammarians Amira (Grammatica Syriaca, sive 
.Gbaldaica, Rome 1596) has made use of Elia (see notes 9 and 34) 
and Abraham Ecchelensis (see notes 53 and 54). The last of which 
I am sorry not to have been able to make use of. It does not 
exist in the Berlin Koyal library. 

l^y text is taken chiefly from Ms. Sachau 306. For the intro- 
duction, which I found only partly in one of the Mss. here, I have 
been able, through the kindness of Dr. Peiser, to make use of Ms. 
Brijt. Mus. add. 25876. I have not thought it worth while to give 
a translation of that part of the Grammar which merely enume- 
rates tjie forms. The numbering of the chapters is my own.** 

It is my pleasant duty here, to thank my revered teacher 
Prof. Dr. Sachau for the interest he has shown in my studies, and

is, word for word, a translation of Dionysius (Ms. Sachau 226, fol. 49 b). 


the helping hand, he has been ever ready to lend me, during my 
stay here in Berlin. Nor can I omit to thank Prof. Dr. Schrader 
and Dr. Steinschneider, for the readiness with which they have 
sought to further my studies. To the Royal Library in Berlin my 
thanks are due for the extreme liberality which its officers have 
shown in allowing the unlimited use of their manuscript treasures.

Ms. Sachau 306, on cotton paper, folio, consisting of 127 
leaves. There are, in addition, 5 detached leaves, which I believe 
to have originally belonged to the volume. -The kurras were for- 
merly 14 in number. The numeration of the kurras is with red 
and black ink, at the beginning and end of each kurrasah. The 
division^, even the smallest, are written in red ink. Many leaves 
are much stained through wet — especially the lower part. This 
manuscript is written in a good modern Nestorian hand — mostly 
carefully punctuated — by a Deacon Suhru a) (fol. Ill a) son of the 
deacon Juhanan from (the convent?) of Be(i)t h Gud h u b) , under the 
jurisdiction of Grazart b a ZabMaita (Be(i)t h Zab h de) c) in the neigh r 
bourhood of Mosoul (fol. 124 a); and was finished towards the end 
of Elul on a Thursday morning, in the year cear^r^ A. Gr. =

Ms. Sachau 216. Large folio, written in a good modern nesto- 
rian hand on european paper, bearing the water mark: F. F. Pa- 
lazzoli, contains 24 kurras, and six leaves of kurasah 25. It has 
evidently been written in haste, as the text shows many gaps. In 
a number of places the Ms. is somewhat unreadable, having fallen 
into the Tigris on its way to Berlin. The writer names himself: 
P h ransi bar Giwargis bar Jausep h bar Giwargis of Be(i)t h Mere in 
the neighbourhood of Tell-kep h . He finished his work on Sunday

The grammatical parts of the dialogues of Severus of Tagrit h 
I have read in the incomplete, and hastily written, Ms. Petermann 
1 : 15. This very defective Ms. was written — in a modern Jacobite 
hand— in the year 2137 gr. Aera = 1826. a) 

The K e t h ab h a d he nukze of Jausep b bar Malkon I have read in 
the well-known Aristotelian Ms. Petermann 1. 9 written in the 
year 1260. b) 

Where I have cited the Lexicon of "Eb h dok h os c) I refer to a 
recently acquired Ms. which Prof. Sachau, with his usual liberalitly, 
put at my disposal. The Ms. was written in the year 1791 in a 
large, clear, and exact Jacobite hand: almost completely punc- 
tuated, Rukkak h a and Kussaya marked by large red blots. On 
the margin are a number of massoretic and exegetic notes, taken, 
I believe, from the Ausar (,) Raze of Bar c Eb b raya. I have also made 
use of Ms. Sachau 182 to control the first Ms. d)

To the excellent tree which is planted by the river of kindness, 
which bringeth forth the fruits of righteousness, the leaves of 
whose excellency do not wither 8 *— desirable young man b) , blessed 
youth, beloved of us, crown of our head— a pious deacon, a ready 
scribe c) , sustained by the everlasting love of the Lord, thy unworthy 5 
Elia greets thee in (the name of) the Messiah, who has instructed 
thee in his teaching, who hath taught thee the secrets of his knowledge, 
and prayeth, that everything that appertained to thee and thine 
shall be supported as becometh his name, and be carried out to 
thy profit. And (thus) I say: Thy cherished letter, beloved one, 10 
has reached me — May our Lord preserve thy life!— I rejoiced at 
its coming, and am thankful to the Lord for thy preservation. I 
have considered what thou hast written, and that thou hast exhorted 
and begged me to write on grammatical subjects, that is, onSyriac 
Orthoepy. But on account of the many worldly affairs (which 15 
demanded my attention) I have been hindered, until now, from 
fulfilling thy wish. (Now) that I have found a little rest, I commence 
to write in brief, that which thou hast wished, for the recreation 
of thy brotherliness. I am (however) persuaded, that thou wilt

however for a writer to praise himself in this way. 


(also) find excellent and praiseworthy a) things in such, of which I 
have made no mention, having to desist from a lengthy exposition. 
Relying upon the might of our Lord Jesus, the Messiah, I 
commence to write the Syriac Orthoepy 1 composed by Mar(i) 
5 Elia, Metropolitan of S6b h a and of Armenia. Lord sustain me ! 
and bring me, through thy mercy, to the completion (of this book). 
Amen. b) 


I. commence with the letters of the Alphabet. One must know, 
10 that the beginning and foundation of orthoepy and orthography 
are the written letters, such as are called k e t h ib h at h a. 2 

Among the Greeks their number is twenty-four ; among the 
Romans — as Ja'kob 11 'Urhaya has shown in his turas mam(l)la 3 — 
twenty- three; among the Copts thirty; among the Armenians 
15 thirty-six; among the Hindus fifty-two. All these nations write and 
read all words that are written for them, [simply] by writing their 
letters, without (feeling the nead of) explanatory points. But the 
Hebrews, Syrians, Persians, Kusites, Elamites 4 , Medes, Phoenicians, 
Alani, Arabians, and other (nations) unknown to us, have not 
20 enough letters to express the words which they write, i. e. which 
they write in their language, and to read them, as they are, rightly. 
On that account they were compelled to place points over the 
letters, so as to distinguish the vowels and words 5 from each other. 

a) M e sabb e k h anyat h a, the Ms. has plainly M e sabb e lanyat h a which I do not 
25 understand. 

b) B : Relying upon the divine might and faithfulness, I begin to write 
the orthoepy of the Aramaic i. e. of the Syriac language, and (?) the book of 
Mar(i) Elia, Metrop. of Nisibis. Letter to him who put a question to him. Lord ! 
Sustain me! Amen! — C: In the name of our Lord, and in the (name) of God we 

30 begin to write the first book of the Grammar written by the Bishop Elia, Metro- 
politan of S6b h a; and another book (composed) by Rabban Juhanan bar Zo'bi. 


On that account (too), they are only able to read correctly either 
by an act of divination, or by tradition, or by means of, much toil 6 

The letters of the Syriac alphabet are (in number) twenty 
two. 7 Following in their order: Alap h , be(i)t h , gamal, dalat h , he, 
wau, zain, he(i)t h . te(i)t h , yud h , kap h , lamad h , mim, nun, semkat h , 5 
r e, pe, sad b e, kop h , ris, sin, tau. Of these 8 , some are pronounced by 
means of the throat and the root of the tongue; such are four: 
alap h , he, he(i)t h , 'e; some, again, by means of the middle of the 
tongue and the palate; such are three: gamal, kap h , kop h ; some, in 
that the tongue is at rest, and the mouth open; such are two: wau, 10 
yud h . 9 One is pronounced through the middle of the tongue and 
the upper part of the palate; such a one is lamadV Four are 
formed by (a forcible emission of) breath. These are called sibi- 
lants, because, through them, one is able to hiss, as long as the 
breath lasts. Such are zain, semkat b , sad h e, sin. 11 One is pro- 15 
nounced by the extreme part of the tongue and the lower teeth; 
— namely ris. 12 Three are formed by the extreme part of the tongue 
and the upper teeth; namely: dalat h , te(i)t h , tau. One, further, is 
pronounced by the extreme part of the tongue, and above the 
upperteeth — nun. Three are pronounced by the lips: be(i)t h , mim, pe. 20 

These, then, are the twenty-two letters; and this is their 
order, according to the succession of their pronunciation: 13 alap h , 
he, he(i)t h ; gamal, kap h , kop h ; wau, yud h ; lamad h ; zain, semkat h , 
sad h e, sin; ris, dalat h , te(i)t h , tau; nun; be(i)t h , mim, pe. Such is 
their order according to the natural pronounciation of the con- 25 
sonants. But, among all nations possessing a written language, 14 
their order as written letters is different from that according 
to their pronounciation. And with good reason has this been so 
arranged by our forefathers. For were they, as written letters, 
arranged according to their pronounciation, it would be difficult 30 
for the scholars to learn them a) ; for the scholar can impossibly 

a) durasa d h abb e he(i)n? 


read 15 for alap h , be(i)t h , gamal, dalat h — alap h , he, he(i)t h , 'e. (For 
that reason) alap h has been placed as the first letter, because its 
place of pronounciation precedes that of all the other letters. 16 
After it be(i)t h has been placed, the pronounciation of which pro- 

sceeds from the lips, at a distance from the (place of) pronounciation 
of the alaph. After it gamal has been placed, which is pronounced 
by means of the tongue and the palate, at a distance from the 
pronounciation of be(i)t h . In the same way, one letter has been 
placed after the other, at a distance from the pronounciation of 

10 the preceeding and following letters; in such a way that the reading 
of their series is made easy for scholars. In such wise they are 
arranged in all the written languages; for in every language it is 
difficult— not easy — , if two letters, the places of pronounciation of 
which are near to each other, follow one upon the other in speaking, 

15 without a vowel coming between them ; as he(i)t h , I say, with 'e or 
zain with semkat h , or gamal with kop b . 

This, then, suffices on the Pronounciation and Order of 
the letters. 



Among the Arabs, the letters which are moved are divided 
into three classes; among the West-Syrians into five. But among 
us East-Syrians, they are divided into seven classes, 18 (1) such as 
25 are pronounced with z e kap b a, I say, (2) with r e b h asa, (3) with 
p e t h aha, (4) such as stand before a letter with r e waha, (5) with 
'elasa, (6) with 'assaka, and (7) such as stand before a letter with 
h 8 b h asa. 

(1) Such letters as have z e kap h a are as alap h and dalat h in 
3o'ad h am (man), as lamad h and he in 'allaha (God). (2") r e b h asa as the 


alap h in 'esaya 19 , und he(i)t h in helma (sleep); (3)p e t b aha as the 
alap h in 'allaha and the 'e in 'ap b ra (dust) ; (4) such as are before 
a letter with r e waha, as the alap b in '6 (&) and kap h in 'arkona 
(ap^tuv) ; (5) before a letter with 'elasa as nun in nura (fire), sin in 
sura (wall); (6) before a letter with 'assaka as aiap h in 'e(i)l, be(i)t h 5 
in be(i)l ; and (7) before a letter with h e b h asa, as alap b in 'id b a 
(hand), dalat b in saddik (righteous). 

One must know, that the expressions allisut b a and r e wihut h a 
are used of wau; massakut h a and h e b b isut h a of yud b . 

The sign of a letter with zekap h a is two points which areio 
placed, one over the other, in a straight line, above the letter. These 
are (also) called sesla d h al 6 'el 20 (upper sesla). The sign of a letter 
with r"b b asa is two points, which are placed, the one beneath the 
other, in a straight line, beneath the letter. These are (also) called 
sesla d h al°t h aht (lower sesla). The sign of a letter with p e t b aha is 15 
two points, of which the one is placed above, the other below, (the 
letter). The signofwaur e wihtais one point, placed above (the letter). 
The sign of wau 'allista is a point placed underneath (the letter). The 
sign of yud h massakta is two points placed underneath the preceeding 
letter. The sign of yud h h e b b ista is a point which is placed above 20 
(the letter). 

Letters at rest 21 are all such as have neither z e kap h a, nor 
h e b b asa, nor p e t h aha; as lamad b in malka (king), be(i)t b inb e ra(son). 
In the same manner every wau with r e waha or 'elasa, and every 
yud b massakta and h e b b ista is called (at rest) ; as wau in '6, hu 25 
(he) s e b b u (thing), and yud h in ge(i)r and be(i)t b (house). 

This suffices on letters in motion and at rest. 



Radical letters 23 are such as are never separated from the 30 
word, being found in every form in which that word is spoken, 


as'e, be(i)t h , dalat h in ' e b b ad b (to make). For, in all the forms 
in which this word is used, these letters are never wanting. Servile 
letters are divided into two classes; (1) such as add to the word 
a (new) meaning, and (2) such as are used only according to 
5 custom (without being heard in the pronounciation). Servile 
letters which add a (new) meaning, are such as wau in t ab h 6d b a 
(maker), katola (killer), nasob h a (one who takes), which have active 
meaning; as yud h in '"bWa, (something made) k e tila (killed), 
n e sib b a (taken), which have passive meaning; as wau in suhl e p b a 

10 (change), sugg e naya (alteration), surtaha (abundance) — which have 
active as well as passive meaning. So also mim and nun in m e sab- 
b e hana (one who praises), m e add e rana (helper), m e saiana (one who 
attacks) — which have active signification; mim and tau in met h - 
ma(l)lana (that which can be spoken), met bc ab b dana (that which 

15 must be made), met b habb e lana (that which is corruptible) — which 
have a passive signification; and as yud b and alap h in allahaya 
(godly), m e sihaya (pertaining to the messiah), R(h)6maya, Jaunaya; 
as nun and alap u in 'ar ana (earthly), besrana (carnal) ; and as nun, 
yud b ,alap b in'aranaya, besranaya, ruhanaya, which (letters) indicate 

20 nomina derivata. 24 In the same manner (are servile) alap b in 'ek h 61 
(I shall eat), 'este (I shall drink), 'et b bassam (I shall have pleasure), 
the nun in ne'k h 61, neste, net h bassam; tauinte'k h 61, teste, tet b bassam. 
In the same manner alap b and tau in 'et b ' e b h ed h (it was made), 
'et h n e seb b (it was taken), 'et b n e seb b (it was planted) — which indicate 

25 a passive perfect (tense); mim and tau in met h ' e b b ed b , met b n e seb b , 
met h n e seb b — which express a passive present (tense) ; and (as) nun 
and tau in net b ' e b h ed h , net b n e seb h , net h n e seb h — which indicate a 
passive future (tense). 

Servile letters which are used only according to custom, are 

30 divided into such as are generally used, and such as are specially 
used. Servile letters which are in general use, are such as are 
expressed in every writing, according to the opinion and custom 


of our ancestors: as yud h in 'et^al^) 25 (yesterday), 'est e kad h (i) 27 
(the year before), m e natmal(i) (the day before yesterday), mensel(i) 
(suddenly), R(h)6ma, 'Antiok h (i). 2fi According to the custom of our 
forefathers, such are expressed in every writing. Servile letters in 
special use, are such as are added only in the Bible — as he(i)t h and 5 
nun 29 in c ab h din h e nan (we are making), kare(i)n h e nan (we are 
calling), sab h e(i)n h e nan (we wish). Such are found only in the 
Bible, 28 according to the custom of the Palestinian Syrians, 31 who 
translated the Holy Books into the Syrian Language. For they 
require he(i)t h and nun (to be written) in such words, as one canio 
learn from the old books of the old teachers, who wrote and spoke 
the Palestinian language. Ja'kob 11 'Urhaya 30 is of opinion, that the 
reason why he(i)t h and nun are added in such cases is to differenti- 
ate words that are written alike, as kare(i)nan from keryanan 
(our reading), sab h e(i)nan from seb h yanan (our wish), bane(i)nan 15 
(we are building) from benyanan (our building), and the like. 
This, too, suffices on Radical and Servile letters. 



The letters which are called cases are four: be(i)t h , dalat h , 20 
wau, lamad\ These letters are called cases a) because they fall (i. e. 
they come to stand) before nouns, as one says: b e p h ag h ra (in a 
body) d e p h ag h ra, w e p h ag h ra, l e p h ag h ra; b e susya (in a horse) d e susya, 
w e susya, l e susya; b e patros, (with Peter), d e patros, w e patros, l e patros. 
Of these only two stand before verbs, 33 namely: dalad h and wau; 25 
as one says: da e b h ad\ wa' e b h ad b ; w e ' e b h det h , w e ' e b h dat h ; d e ne e b h ad h , 
w e ne e b h ad h . Be(i)t h and lamad h never stand before a verb. 

a) German ,Palle'. I use the word 'case' for the letter which denotes that case. 


One must know that it happens that but one case stands 
before a word; as one says: ballaha, dallaha, wallaha, lallaha; at 
times two, as when one says: d e b h allaha, w e d h allaha; at times three, 
as when one says: bad he lallaha, wad he lallaha, lad he b h allaha ; at times 

5 all four, as one says: w e b h ad he lallaha, w e lad he b h allaha etc. 

One must know, that when a case comes before a word, the 
first letter of which has a vowel — said case is pronounced without 
a vowel ; except where the first letter is an alap h , whose vowel, then, 
is thrown upon the case, alike if said case be one letter or more. 

10 If now this case comes before a word, Avhose first letter is vowel- 
less, the case is pronounced with p e t h aha; except when the first 
letter of the word is an alap b , as the alap h in 0) nasa (man) 34 'ar'a 
(land), which causes the preceeding case to become vowelless — be 
this case one or more. If two cases come before a word, whose 

15 first letter has a vowel, the first case is pronounced with p e t h aha, 
the second is left without a vowel; as one says: wal e hakkima, dal e - 
hakkima, bad Ue hakkima, lad he hakkima. Is, however, the first letter 
of the word vowelless, then the first case remains, also, without 
a vowel, the second being pronounced with p e t h aha; as one says: 

20 b e d h am e siha, w e lam e siha, d e b h am e siha l 6 d h am e siha. If three cases 
come before a word, whose first letter has a vowel, the first and 
third cases are pronounced with a vowel, the second, however, with 
p e t h aha; as one says: w e lad be malka, w^'ab^sehyon, w e d h ab he 'e(d)ta. 
If the first letter of the word be vowelless, the first and third cases 

25 are pronounced with p e t h aha, the second vowelless ; as one says ; 
lad h eb b am e siha, wad h eb h am e siha. If four cases come before a word, 
whose first letter has a vowel, the first and third cases are pro- 
nounced with p e t h aha, the second and fourth (remain) vowelless; 
as one says: wal e d h ab he ziwa, wal e d h ab he e(d)ta, and as in the book 

30 [of Samuel] 35 wal e d h ab he rak b il, wal e d h ab he kurya. If, however, the 
first letter of the word be vowelless, the first and third case re- 
main without a vowel, the second and fourth are pronounced with 


p e t b aha; as one says: w e lad b eb h am e siha, w e lad he b b at e nana, w e lad be - 
bak be yana. 

In short 36 — one must know, that every case wich comes before 
a word, is pronounced, either without a vowel, or with p e t b aha. If, 
however, the first letter of the word be an alap b , said alap h throws 37 5 
its motion or rest on the case preceeding. Two case-letters (both) 
vowel-less, or (both) pronounced with p e t b aha, do not occur. 38 

One must know, that in the Bible there are certain words 
which do not follow these rules; as the words: diso', daihud h a, 
dama", daihud b aye, dad h yate(i)ke. These (are pronounced in thisio 
manner) for reasons otherwise apparent to the discerning. 39 They are 
not pronounced according to the rules here laid down ; for when we 
say dab b iso', waliso', we pronounce the case with p e t b aha (instead of 
without a vowel). Also when we say baihud b a, daihud b a 40 , laihud b a, 
waihud h a; and thus when we say baihud b aye, daihud h aye, laihud b aye; 15 
and when we say bama", dama", wama", lama", we pronounce the case 
before mim with p e t b aha. When we say: bad b yate(i)ke', wad b ya- 
te(i)ke', lad h yate(i)ke', we pronounce the case before dalat b with 
p e t b aha. Only in one place (where this word occurs) do we leave 
the case before dalat h vowelless, and that is, in the fourth section 20 
of Hosea a) , where this word occurs thus: w e wad b yate(i)ke' am 
'at b 6raye e b b ad b (u) (and they do make a covenant with the Assy- 
rians) where the wau before the dalat h of d e yate(i)ke', is vowelless. 

This then suffices on the cases. 

a) 12,2. 




Such are six: be(i)t b , gamal, kap b , pe, tau. The rules for the 
5 placing of rukkaha and kussaya in respect to pe, are different to 
those of the other five — as we will show further on. When one 
of these five other letters, be(i)t h , I say, and gamal, kap h , pe, 
tau, stands at the beginning of a word, it is pronounced with 
kussaya, as one says: baita (house), gab h ra(man), dina (judgement), 

10 kahna (priest), tammima (righteous). If a case comes before the 
word, it causes the first letter of the word to be spoken with 
rukkaha ; as one says : b e b b aita, d e b b aita, w e b h aita &c. If the first 
letter of the word be a vowelless tau, upon which a dalat b or tau 
with vowel and rukkaha follows, and one of the cases comes before 

15 the word, — then is the tau at the beginning of the word not pro- 
nounced with rukkaha, but with kussaya; 42 as we read, watt e d h un 
'urlut h a a) (and uncircumcision shall judge), watt e d h us(i) 'ar a b) (letthe 
earth be glad), w e latt e d b aya d b ain e kuk bo) (the breasts which suckled 
thee), watt e t h ub h (i) ['ara men'aula(h)] d) (and the earth shall turn 

20 from its wickedness), watt e t b ub 1, un. If the tau at the beginning of the 
word be pronounced with a vowel, then with rukkaha, as we say: 
b e t b ed b murta, d^ed^urta &c. If the first letter of the word be dalat h 
or tau with a vowel, before which a dalat b as case comes, and before 
this another case — then is the dalat h which is the case before the first 

25 letter of the word, pronounced with kussaya; as we say: wad- 

a) Eomans 2, 27. 

b) «j» 96, 11; 97, 1. The Mss. give watt e d h u§ without yud h . But comp. 
Severus and Bar 'Eb h raya i, 221, 3. 

c) Luke 11, 27. d) According to Bar 'Eb h . i, 221, 3. 



d e d h ame, wadd e t h ed h '6n. If the first letter of the word be vowelless, 
the case is pronounced with p e t h aha, the first letter of the word 
with rukkaha; as we say: w 8 d h ad h0 yasa, w e d b at be wat h a, w e d h at be - 
yab b ut h a. If one of these (five) letters be one of the radical letters 
of a word, and that word is a noun, as that noun is pronounced, 5 
masculine or feminine, singular or plural, or a form ending in na, 
as gab b ya, gab b ye, g e b h aya, g e b b it b a, gab b yat h a, gab h yai, gab h yak\ 
g e b h aik b 6n — in the same manner is that word pronounced (in 
respect to rukkaha and kussaya) in all other forms and in all the 
forms with personal suffixes in which these forms occur. Except 10 
in a few cases; such as marga (meadow) mar e g h e (pi.) ; r esba (herbs) 
c es e b b e; pelga (part), pel e g h e; zelga 43 (splendour), zel e g e e; 44 gunba, 45 
(theft), gun e b h e. 

If one of these letters belongs to the radical letters of a verb, 
as it is pronounced in one of the forms of the verb — indicating 15 
one of the tenses — in the same manner is it pronounced (as 
regards rukkaha and kussaya) in all the examples of that form 
and of that tense, and likewise (in all the forms) of that tense with 
the personal suffixes. 46 Except when the verb indicates the future 
tense, and the nun at the beginning is vowelless, the letter fol- 20 
lowing pronounced with rukkaha or p e t h aha, or is a k e d b am 
allist h a — as n e b h assem, n e g b anne, n e d b abbar, n e k b annes, n e d b un, 
n e d h us, n e t h ub h — in all these verbs, when they occur in the first 
person, and an alap b r e b h ista takes the place of the nun, the second 
letter is pronounced with kussaya ; as : ebbassem, egganne, eddabbar, 25 
ekkannes, eddun, eddus, ettub b — and in all that are similar to these. 47 
If one of these five (letters) occurs at the end of a word, the letter before 
which is vowelless, and the letter before this vowelless letter is a 
/ z e kip h t b a, r e b h ista, or p e t h ihta, then is the letter at the end of the 
word pronounced with kussaya ; as : kamt, n e ha(t b )t, s e kalt, a(n)t, lait, 30 
l e t h aht, et h nasb, et h bark. If the letter before the last be one with a 
vowel, or be a wau r e wik h ta, wau allista, yud b mass e kana or yud h 


h e b b ista, then is the last letter pronounced with rukkaha, as: 
haddet b , n e het b , n e sab h , n 9 sub h , n e hub h , k e ne(i)t\ If the word be 
a verb, indicating the preterite, either according to the inflection 
of ' e b b ad h , s e g h ed h , 'ehad b , or 'et b ' e b h ed b , when it is used in the 

5 first or third singular, masculine or feminine and other letters are 
added at the end — i. e. the personal suffixes 48 — then is the last 
radical letter pronounced with kussaya, when it has a vowel, and 
the preceeding letter is vowelless; as one says, 'eb b det h , 'eb h dat h , 
c ab h dan &c. Is, however, the last radical letter vowelless, the letter 

10 preceeding with vowel — or both letters have vowels, then (is the last 
radical letter) pronounced with rukkaha, as one says: <e b b ad b t, 
s e g h ed h t, 'ehad b t, ' e b h ed h e(i)n, s e g h ed h e(i)n. If the verb indicates the 
present tense, it is treated in the same manner in respect to ruk- 
kaha, and kussaya, when the verb is either of the form 'ab b ed b , 

i5'ahed h , met hte b h ed h or met b n e seb\ If the verb indicates the future 
tense, it is also treated in the same manner in respect to rukkaha 
and kussaya, be it of the form ne'bad h , ne'hod h or net b<e b b ed b . Is 
the verb an imperative, then is the last radical letter pronounced 
with rukkaha: as ' e b b ed b ai(hi) a) , 'ahod h ai(hi), h e rob b ai(hi). But if 

20 the verb expresses the persons of the plural (Imperfect) Active, 

and the letter before the last is vowelless, and before this vowelless 

letter there is a wau allista, then is the last radical spoken with 

kussaya in the following manner: c ub h du(hi), hurbu(hi), et h raurbu- 

.(hi), uhdu(hi). 

25 One must know, that the tau which occurs after the radicals 

of a verb, i. e. the personal pronoun of the first person masculine(!), 
when one letter or two, or more, come after it, is pronounced with 
kussaya; as one says: ' e b h ad h tak h , s e 'artak h , dabbartak b , &c. If 
the letter before the tau be yud h massakta, it is pronounced with 

30 rukkaha, as s e ne(i)t h ak b , s e ne(i)t b a(h), k e re(i)t b ak b &c. 

a) A for a, see Nold., Syr. Gramm. § 190 G. 


Honain 49 the Physician teaches in his book on the points, that 
every tau of this (first) person ought really to be pronounced with 
rukkaha. And, in truth, this is a correct rule, justified by the fact 
that we, when we say: 'eb b det h , seg h det h , meshet h , kadd e set h , we 
pronounce the tau with rukkaha. It were proper (therefore) that 5 
the tau be also pronounced with rukkaha, where the form receives 
an increment; in like manner as the tau of the other persons, as 
it is pronounced when it is at the end of the word, so it is pro- 
nounced when other letters are added (to the word). Our teachers, 
however, have so regulated it that the tau which stands for theio 
first person masculine (!) be spoken with kussaya, — even though 
the rule demand its being pronounced with rukkaha — in order 
that (those) words in which occurs be distinguished form words 
which are feminine, as kabbelte(h) (,) na (I have received him) from 
kabbelt h e(h)hi (she has received him) &c. When this tau is the 15 
personal suffix of the second person masculine, it is pronounced 
with kussaya, as <e b b ad h tan(i) (thou hast made me) &c. ; when, 
however, it is the personal suffix of the feminine, it is pronounced 
with rukkaha; as one says: re b h ad h t h an(i) (she has made me) &c. 

This, then, suffices on the placing of kussaya and rukkaha 20 
with respect to these five letters. 





Pe is pronounced in three different ways : 50 (I) with rukkaha, 
as pe in nap b sa (soul), yap h t (Jephet) 31 , nep h tal(i) (Naphtali); 
(II) a little with kussaya and in a simple manner, 52 as pe in pag h ra 


(body), pat h 6ra (table), pilasa (dish); (III) strongly with kussaya 
as pe in pinna (icopetov), s e rapa (seraph), zopa (uaouvrcos). (Pe) 
is never pronounced with rukkaha at the beginning of a word, nor 
at the end. If 53 one of the cases occurs before a word, the first letter of 

5 which is pe, it does not cause this (pe) to be pronounced with rukkaha, 
as it does the other (letters). Except in a few places, as in the 
twelfth section of Exodus a) : la teb b ne (iuhi) b h ap be silt h a (thou shalt 
not build it of hewn stones). When (pe) occurs as the end-letter 
of the radicals of a verb, and letters are added to (that verb), i. e. 

10 the personal suffixes, in no form is it spoken with rukkaha, but, 
in all the inflections of the verb is pronounced with kussaya. 

One must know that there is no pe with rukkaha, which is 
not vowelless; and no pe with kussaya — simple or strong — which 
has no vowel. 54 

is The sign for all letters with kussaya is one point placed 

above the letter; the sign of rukkaha is one point placed beneath 
the letter ; the sign of pe pronounced strongly with kussaya is two 
points placed above it. 

In regard to the letters which receive kussaya and rukkaha 

20 let this suffice. 



Letters which are absorbed are three: alap h , yu.d h , wau. 56 

Each one of these is absorbed in three different ways ; they are 

25 absorbed either (I) in writing as well as in reading, or (II) absorbed 

in writing, but expressed in reading, or (III) expressed in writing,- 

but absorbed in reading. Such as are absorbed in writing as well 

a) 20, 25. 


as in reading, are : the alap h in b e na (he built), kera, (he read), h e za 
(he saw), k e na (he bought) — which is absorbed when we say: b e nau 
(they [masc] built), k e rau, h°zau, k e nau; b e nai (fern.), k e rai, h e zai, 
k e nai. 57 It were proper to add wau or yud b to the alap h of these 
words — when we say b e nau, h e zau &c, just as they are added after 5 
lamad b of s e kal(u), s e kal(i), and after he(i)t b of p e lah(u), p e lah(i), 
and after dalat h of ' e b h ad h (u), ' e b h ad b (i). Such as are absorbed in 
writing, but expressed in reading, are as alap b in 'Israel, 'ima (he 
swore), 'isep h (he borrowed), 'id b a (he knew) ; and as wau in kul (all), 
metul (because). 58 Such as are expressed in writing, but absorbed 10 
in reading are as 59 the first alap h in (,) nasa (man), 0) raza 
(secret); alap b in ma 1 ' 1 (hundred), tama/^ (unclean), sug b a' (many); 
as wau in k e tal(u), p e lah(u), <e b h ad h (u); as yud b in bait h (i) (my 
house), karm(i) (my vineyard), e b b ad b (i), ab h dan(i), barr e k h an(i), 
kadd e san(i), barrek h (i), karreb b (i), kaddes(i). The reason (for the 15 
absorbtion) of all these is known to the discerning, so that a lengthy 
exposition, on my part, is unnecessary. 

Let this suffice on the letters which are absorbed. 



One must know that a letter which is doubled in the 
middle of a word, when the first is at rest, the second in 
motion — the first i. e. the letter at rest is assimilated, the second 
'pronounced; as the mim in sa(m)mane (spices), 'a(m)me (people), 25 

a) Elia confuses here two different phenomena which I have tried to 
express by a double translation. 


be(i)t h in a(b)bane a) (fruit) ; nun in ma(n)na, lamad b in m 6 k b a(l)lin 
(they [maac] crown), m e k b a(l)lan (fern.); m e ma(l)lin (they [masc] 
speak), m e ma(l)lan (fern.); kop h in m e p h a(k)kin (they are talkative 
[masc.]), m e p b a(k)kan (fern.); ris in 62 ha(r)ra(h) (he has released 
5 her), ha(r)ran(i) (he has released me); m e ha(r)un, m e ha(r)ran 63 ; 
tau in 'e(t)t e wi (he repented) &c, and as we say : 'e(t)t e sim (he was 
placed); 'e(t)t B p b ir (he became angry) &c; and as we say: wa(l)- 
lamek h (and to Lamech); wa(m)maikane (and deriders); wa(m)- 
m e ramrane (and contentious ones); and the like. Where dalat h 

10 with kussaya follows a tau with kussaya and without a vowel — the 
tau is assimilated; as the tau in 'e(t)d e ni (he came near); 'e(t)d e wi 
(he was wretched); 'e(t)d e b h ar (he was lead). And where a tau with 
a vowel and kussaya follows a vowelless dalat h — the dalat is 
assimilated; as the dalat h in m e si(d)ta (net); ,e b h i(d)ta (deed). 

15 Where a te(i)t h follows a vowelless tau — the tau is assimilated, as 
the tau in 'e(t)tayyab h (he was prepared), 'e(t)tannap b (he was 
polluted), 'e(t)tarri (he made a rush), 'e(t)tamma (he became 
unclean); and where a tau with a vowel and kussaya follows a 
vowelless te(i)t b , thete(i)t h is assimilated; as the te(i)t h in asle(t)tak h 

20 (he set thee over), asle(t)tai (hi); asle(t)tan(i) ; la(t)tai (hi) (thou 
[fern.] hast cursed him). Where a vowelless dalat h with rukkak b a 
is followed by tau with a vowel and rukkak h a, dalat h is assimilated; 
as dalat u in ha(d h )t h a (new), ha(d h )t h ait h (newly), ha(d h )t h ut h a 
(novelty). Every vowelless nun, before which is a yud h b e b h ista, and 

25 after which a tau m e kassaita, is suppressed ; 64 as nun in m e di(n)ta (city),, 
s e p h i(n)ta (ship). So also, if before the nun a letter with p e t h aha; 
as z e b b a(n)ta (time), sa(n)ta (year) b) . When we say y(h)ud h ayey 
r(h)6maye, par(h)esia, 66 we suppress the he. And when we say 
ye(h)bet h , ya(h)b b te(i)n &c. in all the forms of the perfect in which 

30 this word is used we suppress the he. As also the he is suppressed 

a) Bead e(b)bane as in Payne-Smith, col. 7. 

b) B and C add: and when we say 'nasa. &c 65 


in the forms of met b iheb h , 'et b iheb b , net h iheb h (i. e. of the 'Ethp e 'el) 
when it is vowelless; as we say: met b ya(h)bin, met b ya(h)ba &c. 
When, however, the tau has a vowel, then (the pronounciation of the 
he) is required ; as 'et^hebH, 'et h iheb b &c. Lamad b of (the verb) 'ezal, 
'azel, ne'zal, is suppressed wherever it is necessary according to the 5 
inflection of this verb ; (that is) where lamad h has a vowel, the 
zain before it being vowelless. In such cases the vowel of the 
laraad h is thrown upon the zain, and the lamad b is suppressed; 
as we say 'eze(l)t h &c. If the zain naturally (i. e. not having received 
it from the lamad h ) has a vowel, and the lamad b is vowelless — orio 
both letters have vowels, the lamad b must then be pronounced, 
as: 'ezal, 'ezalt &c. 

In short 67 — one must know, that a letter is neither absorbed 
in reading, nor assimilated, nor suppressed, except it be vowelless. 

Let this, too, suffice on the letters which are assimilated. 15 



One must know, that where a kap b or kop b with a vowel 
follows a vowelles zain — such a zain is pronounced as semkatfe^o 
as the zain in z e k b arya, z e kip h a (cross), z e kip b ut b a (crucifiction), 
'ezka^a 69 (rings), z e k b a (he was victorious). Where a vowelless 
semkat b is followed by a letter with a vowel and kussaya, it is 
pronounced as zain; as the semkat b in 'esba (herbs); 'asga (make 
increase), nesge; nesbet b (I have taken), nesbat h ; mesdar (to order), 25 
nesdor ; mesgar (to close), nesg e ri(h) ; kusbart b a (coriander) ; 70 and all 
that are like these. Where a vowelless te(i)t b is followed by sin 
having a vowel, it is pronounced like tau; as te(i)t b in netson (they 
will hide), netse, matsait b . 71 Where a vowelless kop b is followed by 
a letter, having a vowel and kussaya, it is pronounced as gamal; 72 3o 


as kop h in yakda (burning); yakdana; ne'kdon; pukdana; ekbor 
(I will bury); wal e mekb e ran(i) — and all that are similar to these. 
Where a vowelless dalat h with kussaya is followed by kop h with 
a vowel, it is pronounced like te(i)t h ; as the dalat h in protd e ka 

5GiLu**i ambassador) protd e kaye; k e potd e kaye. 73 Where te(i)t b 
without a vowel, is followed by pe m e kassaita — as pe in pag b ra — 
it is pronounced like dalat b ; as te(i)t h in neht e p b unak b74 (they will 
tear thee away) ; neht e p b an(i) ; nutp b et b a (drop) ; where a vowelless 
kop h is followed by a pe having a vowel, it is pronounced like 

iokap b ; 75 as the kop h in 'esk e p h a (oxocpog); k e p h asa (knee); 'et b k e p h es 
(it was assembled); nezk e p b 6n (they will hang). If a vowelless 
semkat b is followed by a pe saggi m e kassaita — as pe in zopk — it 
is pronounced as sad b e; as the semkat b of sep^a 76 (book) (!); 
s e p h ar ja(m)ma (sea-shore) (!); where a vowelless gamal m e rak- 

I5kak b t h a is followed by pe m e kassaita, 77 it is pronounced like kap b ; 
as the gamal of g e p be tta (vine); g e p b ip h t b a 78 (enclosure); g e p b ip b a 
(crooked). Vowelless sin followed by a letter with a vowel and 
kussaya, is pronounced as the gamal of the Arabs ; 79 as the sin in 
nesbon (they will carry into exile) ; nesgon (they will go astray) ; 

20 nesdon (they will throw). 

In short- — every letter that interchanges with another is 

Let this, then, suffice on the letters that interchange with 
one another. 






30 I will now say — that these two points are placed over all nouns 


in the plural number, be they masculine or feminine ; as we place them 
over (the words): gab h re (men); nese (women); h e lime (healthy); 
h e limat b a(fem.);zaddike (righteous), zaddikat h a(fem.); hamsa gab b rin 
(five men); ' e sar nesin (ten women); 'esra zaddikin (ten righteous); 
hamsa lflimin (five healthy); t e lat h a kaddisin (three holy); t e lat b 5 
kaddisan (fern.). They are moreover placed over feminine plural verbs 
as Ce b h ad h (i), 'abMan &c. ; over masculine plural verbs, however, — as 
<e b h ad h :'ab b din; nebdon — s e yame are not placed. Moreover, over 
all masculine plural words which stand in stead of a noun or a 
verb, s e yame are not placed; as one says: '"b^d^n, h e limin, zad-io 
dikin. For, in this case ' e b h id h in, h e limin, zaddikin stand for the 
passive (participles) "made", "healthy", "righteous". 'Vid^n, 
h e limin, zaddikin however, when they signify a number of 
made things, of healthy persons, of righteous persons, receive 
s e yame. 81 Nouns which have a singular form, but are in reality 15 
plurals, 82 as kensa (congregation) ; masrit b a (camp) ; amma (people) ; 
si't b a (crowd); bakra (ox-herd); rahsa (reptile); rak h sa (horse); 
'ana (sheep); and the like, take partly the (points) s e yame, and 
partly not. They are placed over such (of these) as are not used 
in any other form but (this) one, as rahsa, rak h sa,'ana. For nouns 29 
like these are used in no other but this one form: rahsa, rak h sa, 
ana a) . Over bakra, however, kensa, 'ama, masrit b a, sit b a and the 
like s e yame are not placed, because we say bakre, kense &c. Over 
all nouns which are not used in the singular, but, (only) in the 
plural 83 number, as maya (water) ; d e maya (price) s'yame are placed. 25 
Over nouns which have singular and plural meaning, 84 as s e maya, 
0) nasa, s e yame are not placed. The noun s e maya is used in the 
singular when we say: la b b as e maya d he k b urs e ya(h)u d b allaha b> 
(not by heaven, for it is God's throne) ; in the plural number, when 

a) B and C: for we do not say: 'ane, rak^se, rahse. b) Math. 5, 34. 


we say: nehdon s e maya watt^'us^i) 'ara 8 > (let the heavens rejoice, 
and let the earth be glad). 85 The noun ( '>nasa 86 is used in the 
singular, when we say. la t b ehde 'al (,) nasa d be maet bb) (rejoice not 
over a man that is dead); in the plural number, when we say: 

5it h ^nasa d be kaimin t e nan c) , (there are men standing here). Upon 
such and the like we do not put s e yame. Upon such nouns that 
are plural in number, but in their pronounciation resemble singular 
ones, as kurya 87 (cities), hemra (asses), taira (bird), s e yame are 
placed. Upon all words that are written in only one form, and 

10 from the pronounciation of which we understand that they are of 
the plural number 88 — as 'ike' (six?)), d e yat h e(i)ke' (8ia8^x7j), ananke* 
(avdpcf]) — , s e yame are not placed. Upon all personal pronouns 
in the plural number — as hale(i)n, henon &c, s e yame are not 
placed. All words, which are neither nouns nor verbs, when the 

15 personal suffixes are attached to them — as'al, am, metul. se(i)d b , 89 
l e wat b , h e d b ar, (the letters) be(i)t b , lamad h — do not receive s e yame; 
for we say: kulhon, kulhe(i)n, 'amhon, 'amhe(i)n &c. &c. 

In short — all words, which, when the personal suffixes are 
wanting receive s e yame, (receive them) likewise when these suffixes 

20 are added, as (from) batte and darat h a we say battain, darat h an, 
battaik b 6n, darat b k h 6n, darat b k h e(i)n, and the like. If, without 
the additions, they do not receive s e yame, then, when these are 
added, they (likewise) do not receive them; as (from) baita, darta 
we say: baitan, baitk b 6n, baithe(i)n &c, and others similar 

25 to these. 

This, also, suffices, on the two points called s e yame. 

a) ty 96, 11. b) ?. c) ?. 




Every letter which is spoken with z e kap h a and occurs in the 
middle of a word, is pronounced in spelling with z e kap h a; and so 5 
every r e b b ista (is pronounced) with r e b b asa, every p e t b ihta with 
z e kap b a, every letter before a r e wihta with r e waha, every letter 
before an 'allista with ' e lasa, every letter before a massakta with 
'assaka, every letter before a h e b h ista with h e b h asa. If a letter with 
h e b h asa occurs at the beginning of a word — as yud h in id b a, iso', 10 
izep b , ima — it is pronounced in spelling with r e b b asa. A vowelless 
letter which occurs at the beginning of a word is pronounced in 
spelling with z e kap b a. Every vowelless 'alap h which occurs in the 
middle of a word, is pronounced in spelling with the same vowel 
as the preceding letter. Every wau r e wihta or 'allista, yud h i5 
massakta or h"b b ista which occurs in the middle of a word, is 
pronounced in spelling with r 9 b h asa. Furthermore, every vowelless 
letter which occurs in the middle of a word, and every letter at 
the end of a word is pronounced in spelling with r e b h asa. 

This, too, suffices on the spelling of the letters. 20 



These are four (in number) : zauga, tahtaya, elaya and pasoka. 
(We will further show) in what manner it is proper that each one 
6f them be used. 25 

Zauga is put between the members of the commencement (of 
a sentence), when the protasis is long; 92 as kad h de(i)n 'et b iled b 


iso b he b h e(i)t h l e hem daihud h a: b e yaumai herodes malka a) . Because 
the protasis is long, zauga is put in the middle of it; that is, after 
the noun daihud h a. In the first place on account of the breath, 
that the reader be not hard pressed because of the length of 

5 the sentence; secondly because it is more fitting to place zauga 
after 'ihud h a than in any other place. 

Tahtaya is put when the protasis is ended and the apodosis 
commences; as: kad' 1 de(i)n 'et b a iso lat h ra d he kesraya d be p h ilipos •. 
m e sa'el(h)wa l e t h almid h au(hi) w'emar b) . Because the word d e p b ilipos 

10 is the end of the protasis, and the word m e sa'el the beginning 
of the apodosis, it is proper that tahtaya be put after p h ilipos, in 
order that it be known that the protasis is at an end and the 
apodosis commencing. 

'Elaya is put between the legs y;} , i. e. the members of the 

is apodosis, when the apodosis is long, as: had h e d b e(i)n kula(h) 
d h ah e wat h d e net h malle medem detVmar (marya) b be yad' 1 n 6 b b ia . 
d e hai [Read d e ha] b h8 t h ulta t h eb h tan[i] wVelad h [i] b*ra.- w'nekron 
s e me(h) 'ammanu'el c) . 94 

Pasoka is put when the sense (of the sentence) is complete; 

20 as: h e wa ramsa wah e wa sap h ra yauma had h . d) and as: yaumanii 
'am(i) teh e we b he pardaisa. e) When the protasis is incomplete — in 
that it comes to an end with one clause, zauga is not put; but at 
the end tahtaya is placed and then, the apodosis sets in ; as : kad 11 
c al l'ureslem*. e(t)t e zi'at h kula(h) m e di(n)ta .^ ; and as: wal e yauma 

25d b at he lat h a-. h e wat h mestut h a b be katne' m e di(n)ta d h ag he lila . g) If 
both protasis and apodosis are incomplete, in that they come to 
an end with one clause, instead of tahtaya, samka is put between 
protasis and apodosis; as: 'ab h raham 'auled h lishak b) ; and as: da(n)t 
tet h k e re k^'p^.^ If the protasis be medium, so that it comes to 

a) Math. 2, 1. b) Math. 16, 13. c) Math. 1, 23. d) Gen. 1, 5. 
e) Luke 23, 43. f) Math. 21, 10. g) Johu 2, 1. 
h) Math. 1, 2. i) John 1, 43. 


an end with one clause, the apodosis with two or more, the first 
clause, i. e. the protasis, is divided off by tahtaja, the other follo- 
wing clauses, which constitute the apodosis, are divided off by 
elaya. At the end of the whole sentence pasoka is put ; as : b e yarha 
d''e(i)n das e t b a% 'est e lah gab b ril mala'k h a/ men l e wat h 'allaha.- 5 
lag he lilalam e di(n)tad h as e ma(h) nasrat h . a) ; and as: hannanya*. manau 
d e hak b ana m e la atana [b he ]lebak\- datt e d h aggel b e ruha d he kud be sa / 
wa(t)tasse men kespa dadd e me(ih) d h ak e rit b a. b) When both pro- 
tasis and apodosis are long, then must necessarily the protasis be 
divided off by zauga, at the end of which tahtaya is put; and theio 
apodosis is divided off by 'elaya, at the end of which pasoka is 
put; as: wah e wa d he k b ad h salkin (h)wau sem'on ke'p h a w e yuhanan 
ak h h e d h a l e haikla : b e 'eddana d h as e 16t u a d h at he sa sarin-. w e ha

'aile(i)n dam e 'ad b in w e maite(i)n w e saimin le(h).- b e t b ara d Ue haiklai5 
d be met h k e ra sappira. c) 

Let this also suffice on the points. 




In the first place one must know, that there are nouns which 
are used in the singular, 95 but not in the plural; others that are 
used in the plural, but not in the singular; there are some which 
are used in the masculine gender, but not in the feminine; others 
which are used in the feminine, but not in the masculine. Some 25 
again are used in the singular and plural, masculine and feminine. 
Such as are used in the singular, and not in the plural as: s e rara 

a) Luke 1, 26. b) Acts. 5, 3. c) Acts. 3, 1.2. 


(truth); kusta (truth), 'a(n)ta (woman). Such as are used in the 
plural, and not in the singular, as maya (water) , d e maya (price) , 
p e latawat h a (7cXaxeia). Such as are used in the masculine, 
and not in the feminine as; nesra (eagle), baka (knat), 'ud h a (owl), 
szaita (olive tree), 'arza (ceder tree). Such as are used in the 
feminine and not in the masculine gender, as: s e nunit h a 96 (swal- 
low),* sep h ra (bird), tet h a (fig), 'enb e t h a (grape). Such as are 
used in the singular as well as in the plural, are as the word 
w nasa. Such as are used in the masculine as well as in the 

10 feminine gender are as: 'a'ar (a^p), s e maya (heaven), semsa (sun), 
ruha (wind), h e mara (ass). Such as are used in singular and 
plural number, in masculine and feminine gender; as the noun: 
s e maya. For when we say : la b h as e maya d he k h urs e ya(h)u d h allaha we 
show (its being used as) masculine and singular. We say also: 

isnehdon s e maya watt 6 d h 6s(i) 'ar'a — where we show (its being used 
as) plural; and we say. semkat h ge(i)v s e maya k he mirait h , b) and 
show (its being used in) the feminine gender. 

One must know that for the Syriac nouns there are no rigid 
rules, 97 from which one can learn to form from singular and mas- 

20culine (nouns), plural and feminine ones. On the contrary, one 
must learn to understand (the inflection) of allmost all, through 
means of tradition — with very few exceptions. For the verbs, 
however, there exist rules, by means of which one can learn their 
inflexions, the vowel-movements of their letters, the cases when 

25kussaya and rukkaha are made use of. For, as every verb indicating 
(one) of the tenses is pronounced, (in that form), together with 
(the forms) to which the personal suffixes are added — in the same 
manner are inflected all verbs of the same form, denoting the same 
tense and person. 

a) Jer. 8, 7. b) Math. 16, 3. 


1. I have rendered turas mam(l)la with 6p6oe7teta, since 
Elia of Tirhan 4, 17 (compare transl. p. 25 note 2) has taught us 
the real meaning of these words. Compare also the commencement 
of Ms. B of Elia of Nisibis: d e lesana 'aramaya and of Chap. I — 

5 where orthography as well as orthoepie are mentioned (5, 5). a) It 
is strange that Baethgen himself (1. c. p. 4) makes use of the 
senseless expression: "Emendation of the Syriac Language" (Ver- 
besserung der syrischen Sprache). b) The expression seems to 
have arisen from a wrong conception of the extent of the grammar 

10 of Jacob of Edessa, according to which Wright (Catalogue of the 
Syriac Manuscripts &c. p. 1168) translates "Emendation of the 
Mesopotamian Language", although he himself says (ibid.) that it 
was only "partly with the view of recommending this system (of 
the vowel-letters) to his countrymen that he composed" his gram- 

15 mar. Abbe Martin (Histoire de la Ponctuation p. 41) translates 
wrongly: "correction des Smahe". c)

10 • 7. As regards the number of the letters of the alphabet the 
native grammarians disagree. Later, the attempt was made 
(Martin, Journal Asiatique 1872, p. 321) to equal, even to over- 
reach the number in the Arabic alphabet. Bar Zo'bi counts as 
many Syriac letters as Arabic, Elia of Tirhan (36, 18 ff.) thirty 

15 (comp. transl. p. 51 note 1), Bar 'Eb h raya (i, 194, 5 f. 212, 19) thirty-

41. What Bar Zo'bi says on this subject is too long to be 
transcribed here. It covers from fol. 75 b to fol. 80a. He divides 
his material in 24 Kan6ne V) — a method of which he often makes 
use, and which he has in common with Jacob of Edessa. The 
whole makes the impression of his having used Elias as starting- 25 
point. (The first two Kanone are copied, almost word for word.) 
In regard to A he mentions him by name (see below). 

a) Elia of Tirhiin, p. 38 transl. "im I2 (en Capitel von Numeri". The citation 
was found neither by Baethgen nor t>y his critic ZDMG. xxxvi, 706. It 
is Num. 16, 26, with which compare Bar 'ElA i, 154, 2. (On r^-iXM^ see

Severus fol. 43a has the following interesting passage:

It is clear that this passage bears great similarity to Jacob of 
Edessa, in Wright, Catalogue etc. p. 1169. As common source we 
20 have to look upon the following: Dionysius 12, 5 (compare the 
preceeding page: tootcdv <}n^ (r^Awina) p.ev eoxi Tpta, x it t, 
Saoea (nfiua*.) rpia, 9 9 X' M aa (^^J^ 30 ) &e toutiov Tpta,

102. Elia gives here the regular form of the Imperative 
'Et h p e 'el, with Marh'tana of the third letter; except where this 
letter is one of the six following: < i . %. * -^ \ r** } which receive 

15 M e hagg e yana (i. e. 'et h>e k h el, 'et h m e ret &c). If, however, the last letter 
of the word is a guttural, then Marh/tana is retained (i. e. 'et b dak h r, 
'ezdahr &c). He draws the same distinction with the verbs tertia 
yod h — et h hazy(y), 'et h pany(y), but 'et h l e hi, 'et h m e li &c. This 
use of M e hagg e yana with certain letters 10 seems to have been a 

20 speciality of the school of S6b h a. Bar 'Eb h raya i, 200,2 (comp. 201,8. 
Duval, p. 127) says that distinctly: jlsuj *so •jiiiK' .Kliiao- .» 

.^cnTJsa .j^cnvta ^.cmsa i\coo .^^'\sq Av»a orC ^,'.\cns>3 

a) Elia is not consistent ; 46, 3, 21 omits alap h , and reads the forms 'et b, anin. 
et h 'ak h l, and 'et h nasb (but see 'et h n e seb h ) -with marh'tana. Bar Zo bi, too, in 
his fifth kanun reads them with liiarb/tana. 

b) Other Grammarians give different letters. See Bar r Eb h riiya, Bar Zo b£ 
and Bar Malkon. 


In his list, however, of the Imperative forms of the 'et h p e el 
he ignores this distinction altogether"). For the 'et h paal Elia 
knows only the full form 'et h baddak b) ; although some exceptions 
to this rule had already crept into the pronunciation of the 
school of S6b h a c) . According to Elia of Tirhan 28,16 the passages 5 
are: Isa. £2,2; Acts. 12,8; Numb. 16,26. Has he perhaps this very 
passage here in view ? As a commentary to the above passage

NOTES. 59* 

I do not quite see how, in our text p. coo. 14, the verb 'estamk 
comes to be enumerated together with others ending with a 
gutteral. It is possible that something has here been omitted, and 
that this verb, together with the three preceding ones, belongs 
5 to a different rule. Bar Zo'bi in his fifth kanun, speaking of such 
verbs whose first letter is one of the r^\*ioHx£a r<L=»nr< says : 

.ictmr^ .*±jza2k-x.rf .vysaAv-auK' .i.n-.aL&re' vui^ K'.ia .o. a

I notice that a large number of mistakes have remained uncor- 
rected. The great distance from the place of printing made it 
impossible for me to see more than one proof; of some of the sheets I 
have seen none at all. I must ask the kind indulgence of the reader 
for this unusually large list of errata. The following list makes no 
pretence of completeness, obvious misprints having been occasionally 

In a number of proper names, such as Juhanan Ja'kob h , &c, the 
J must be changed into Y. In the first part I have written Tirhan 
instead of the more correct Tirhan. In the Syriac text there is an 
inconsistency in the use of the vowels e and e, a and a. This is due 
to the Mss. which, like most modern Nestorian ones, often make no 
distinction between the long and the short vowels. In the latter part 
of the text I have corrected a number of these cases and substituted the 
correct forms. Distinctly Nestorian peculiarities have of course been 
allowed to remain. 

P. 6 to note o) See Horst, Des Metrop. Eli as von Nisibis

ibjd. to note b) 'Ab h dis6' does not say that the author mentioned 
in B. 0. iii, p. lOOff. wrote any grammatical treatise. Assemani 
here confounds Hazzaya with Huzaya. (Hoffmann, Pers. Mart., p. 117.) 
Baethgen (T. L. Z. 1887, No. 10, p. 223) has been misled by this 
mistake to refer the OsCUSOCUCU.I JU.O& (Frothingham, Stephen bar 
Sudaili, p. 4, who also follows Asseman) to Dionysius Thrax. To
